Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) is committed to putting the service user and carer at the centre of everything we do and strives to improve patients' and service users' experience of our service.
We take all issues of abuse or neglect of adults and children at risk very seriously, and we are committed to dealing with these issues effectively to protect all service users, carers and staff at risk of abuse or harm. This includes adults and children who are at risk of domestic abuse.
The Trust works in partnership with three local authorities to safeguard adults at risk of abuse and neglect: Camden Council, London Borough of Islington and two mental health teams in Kingston. Each of the three boroughs and C&I work in line with the Pan-London Safeguarding procedures and Care Act (2014).
